Notes for Gita Chanting Competition


There are two versions of Bhagavad Gita Chapter 13
Version 1: Has 34 slokas and begins with Sri Bhagavan Uvacha
Version 2: Has 35 slokas and being with Arjuna Uvacha
For the Gita Jayanti Competitions, we will follow Version 1 consisting of 34 slokas.

Please remember to bring an ID that indicates your date of birth when you come for the competitions

During the preliminary rounds of the chanting competition, when a participant is called upon to chant before our distinguished judges, only the parents, grandparents or teachers of the student will be allowed to be present. This arrangement allows our judges to offer specific and highly useful feedback to the participant for his/her improvement without worry about how other participants might view his/her chanting.

On the day of the competitions, besides those who participate in the competition, we also invite anyone interested in Gita Chanting to join us for some "non-competitive" chanting. This means, that you are welcome to chant slokas from the particular portion, while reading from the Gita book. Our judges will be happy to assist you and provide you with feedback.
